B-36 Museum in Fort Worth

I have a personal connection with this aircraft type, my father served on it during his Air Force enlistment. He has a yearbook of sorts, and I have very fond memories of listening to his active duty experiences. He’ll still tell you one, if you ask.

Peacemaker

It’s a huge beast, and isn’t preserved in great numbers. In fact there are only four in displayable condition, and the one here in Fort Worth needs a permanent home. The City of Fort Worth is its name, and it was renovated with a ton of volunteer time (over 40,000 hours) and support form Lockheed Martin.

There are several terrific sites devoted to the B-36, and most have links to donation sites for a new home.

    The newest and most up to date website for the B-36 is found at (b-36peacemakermuseum.org). View the history of the last B-36 ever built and the attempt by the B-36 Restoration Team to build a building in which to display it at NAS Ft. Worth JRB. We need your help.
